Testify! A Life’s Time of Emerging Blackness
Ernest Shaw, Motor House Senior Artist in Residence

TESTIFY! A Life’s Time of Emerging Blackness w/ Ernest Shaw 2

July 8th, 2019 through September 28th, 2019

Testify! is a coalition of work created for three major projects: ‘The Blackness, Manhood and Masculinity Initiative’, ‘Sorry I didn’t know’ and ‘Too Cool for School’. A number of the pieces were created during Shaw’s sabbatical from Baltimore City Public Schools. These works combined serve as a testimony to Black portraiture and Black figurative artists current and past.
This exhibition is made possible by the financial support of the Robert W. Deutsch Foundation.
